Doorway to the Land of 100,000 Welcomes

There is nothing lovelier than the pride and welcoming spirit of Ireland’s people. Hospitality abounds in the pubs, restaurants, on the streets. As we traveled throughout Ireland, we received numerous invitations in every county to join the lads in the pubs, to on-street inquiries asking whether we were lost, to colloquial instructions on how to act like an Irish. 🙂 Céad Míle Fáilte: truly, Ireland is the land of 100,00 welcomes! Friendly and full of pride – never more evident than the colorful entryways of Ireland’s homes.

Seemingly always freshly painted and adorned with a bit of greenery or flowers; every entry a welcome. 

May you have warm words on a cold evening,
A full moon on a dark night,
And the road downhill all the way to your door.
